About me

I started writing code probably when I was 10. For some reason instead of getting NES or PS, i’ve got Sinclair ZX for New Year Eve from my parents and after a while I got really excited with what you can get, writing just few lines of code.

I played and hacked with a lot of stuff including prolog, lisp, c , turbo pascal, delphi, basic, bash, javascript, vb, vbscript

I truly love javascript and really like where it is right now, 15 years after I first discovred it.

I used to mainly work on three platforms

.net (c#, iis, asp.net, sql server, wcf etc) MEAN stack (javascript, node.js, express.js, mongo, angular.js) Python (flask, web.py) After trying and playing with number of client-side MV** frameworks, I stick with angular.js for now, waiting when polymer/platform became more stable.

Although two years ago I moved to San Francisco and joined Instacart. Now my trick of trades include Ruby and RoR, Python, Javascript (and React), PostgreSQL, Redis and few other things.

I’ve got MSPD .net 4.0 Web Developer certification (MCTS WCF 4.0, ADO.NET 4.0, ASP.NET 4.0) few years back. I am trying to pickup new language every year. Last year (2018) it was Kotlin.

My story with JS started with IE6 and client side calculators for totaling clients expenses on pre-print media, that was quite long time ago, when there was no AJAX buzz word. I moved to jquery, RICO, prototype and back to jquery, and was using mostly it since version 1.2. Also I was using ASP.NET AJAX for almost 10 years and find it to be quite under-valued framework.

I’m collecting 30 lines or less javascript examples, feel free to add yours http://30lines.info

In my free time I am sketching, traveling, reading books and very irregulary attend music events. Also I am trying to get back to electronics, but I have not really done much since my colledge.

I am trying to answer questions on Stack Overrflow but don’t have a lot of time for that lately.
